Cheapest cider in Bristol. Most customers nod in acquaintance as after you've had 3 pints it's hard to remember who you know. Music was good and bar staff friendly. Not sure what it's like late at night but convivial early in evening

Thatcher's Traditional and Cheddar Valley on draught, crazy strong cider.Treat it with respect. 3 pints is more than enough for most. Surreal atmosphere - one night 2 shoplifters came in carrying a sofa, and asked if anyone wanted to buy it!

An old fashioned drinkers pub, the highlight being Thatcher's Cheddar Valley (not a cider for the faint of heart) for just £2.15 a pint - you can get pretty merry for just over a tenner. Probably the most Bristolian place I've ever drank in. Nothing...More

This place is just priceless. And cheap even!! If you want to spend an evening with some true Bristolians, drinking Natch on tap, look no further.

Blackthorn Cider for £1.98! & thats one of the more expensive drinks! You can get seriously pissed here for a tenner, and pull, although look closely for stubble in a skirt after a few! Great pub, good people, dirt cheap, & central.
